I receive Medicaid, how do I schedule a trip?

Steps to booking a Medicaid trip:

  1. Call the Department of Social Services(DSS) at 919-245-2774 and leave a voicemail detailing your NEMT transportation request. 
    • OCPT does not schedule Medicaid trips only DSS can schedule your Medicaid transportation.
  2. Reservations for transportation should be made at least 2 days in advance of the requested trip date
  3. DSS will book the reservation with the appropriate transportation provider which may include OCPT.
  4. OCPT will call the day before your appointment to confirm your pick up time and trip destination.
  5. On the day of your trip, remember to give your OCPT driver the filled out Medicaid Transportation Verification of Receipt of Medicaid Covered Service form.
